flag and putted it up. it was the libyan security forces who let us down in benghazi when ambassador stevens was killed. i don't think it's appropriate to somehow blame the state department or the white house for this. and now obviously, we have to do everything we can to protect our people. as grow know president obama got on the phone with the president of egypt after the embassy was attacked and basically said you have to do a better job. there's is my paraphrasing what i read about the conversation in the newspaper. you have to did a better job and protect our embarrass sip. that's the right message. i think it's tined time for the americans to stand time. it's a tough time for the diplomats. they -- >> host: georgia is on the live eric on the line for democrats. hey. >> caller: yeah. i have two comments. thanks for taking my call. first of all, the g.o.p. often says there's a libbial media. that can't be phut from the truth. all media is corporate owned. when you're a tv person, all you're doing is what your boss is what you are doing. you are an employee owned by a rich people

at the consulate in benghazi. secretary of state hillary clinton was scheduled to testify to congress in a closed intelligence briefing today. it's been suggested the u.s. was warned about that attack in libya three days before it happened. the administration insists they haven't seen intelligence about "significant advanced planning" for that attack. but interestingly the white house is now calling the deadly assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi a terrorist attack for the first time. and it happened on the anniversary of 9/11. fancy that. u.s. relations with israel at least on the surface appear to be getting much worse as president obama continues to say he doesn't have time to meet with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. iran continues to march toward nuclear weapons. syria continues to murder its own people. it all suddenly feels much worse than it has for some time. here's the question, how satisfied are you with u.s. policy in the middle east? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile. post a comment. or go to our post on "the situation room" facebook page. wolf. >> jack, thank you. >>> meanw
in the streets. in libya, an investigation underway on the deadly assault on a u.s. post in benghazi. this was the scene yesterday after what is now being called a coordinated attack that ended with four americans dead, including one of our most valued ambassadors, chris stevens. in yemen hundreds of protesters stormed the u.s. embassy grounds chanting "death to america," a phrase we have heard in so many places over the past 48 hours. while in iraq demonstrators trampling on the stars and stripes, setting our flag on fire and showting anti-american and anti-israeli chants. in just a few minutes we will speak with one of the foremost authorities on the middle east when dr. henry kissinger joins us life with his take on what -- live with his take on what we are seeing right now on this earth. but first we go to leland vittert who has just arrived in cairo. his photographer is not there yet, so he is coming with us via laptop, and the situation is precarious. leland? >> reporter: well, so long as the laptop the balcony, we're going to be okay, megyn. we're about 18 stories up, and you
veteran who served in missions from baghdad to benghazi. tyrone woods and glen doherty were former navy s.e.a.l.s who were working as diplomatic security officers at the u.s. consulate. the bodies were met by u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton, vice president joe biden and president barack obama. >> but even as voices of mistrust and suspicion seem to divide countries and cultures from one another, the united states of america will never retreat from the world. >> we've seen the anti-american protests popping up in more than a dozen countries now, but not all of them have been violent like what we've seen in egypt or libya. many more of the protests have been peaceful like this one in pakistan, with muslim demonstrators voicing their anger over an anti-muslim film produced in the u.s. >> some of the largest anti-american protests have been in cairo where officials were forced to build large concrete walls in the streets just to keep protesters away from the u.s. embassy there. ian lee joins me now from cairo. we know at points there's been lots of people, thousands of people, at leas
of the eastern region where the city of benghazi is saying that a number of individuals suspected of involvement in the attack on the consulate in the city of benghazi have been detained. and they are being interrogated right now. an investigation is ongoing with these individuals. and he says this will reveal either their development or innocence in this attack. >> all right. jomana karadsheh, thank you railroad much. hopefully it will find out if they're victims of a plot or outrage shown as american outposts through the world. demonstrators in at least ten countries, building against america over what one reported american created, a movie that mocks the prophet muhammad as a child molester and a womanizer and in iran, chants of death to america. in yemen, several thousand people demonstrated, some of them breached a wall of the u.s. embassy. 24 security officers were hurt along with at least 3 protesters who were injured. in egypt, you're looking at live pictures now. state television reports more than 200 people were hurt in anti-u.s. protests in cairo. the secretary of state hillary clinto
are in benghazi for us right now. what's the scene like there? >> well, everyone we have been speaking to and i literally just landed here two hours ago, is incredibly distraught of what took place. they are in utter shock and want to make clear how anguished they are over what transpired. they want the world to know, this is not libya or an action that was supported by the vast majority of libyans. this most certainly is not why they want revolution. many of them reiterated against the fact that they expect them to the united states to nato for their aid. that being said, all of them want to see their government disarm with these gangs that are roaming about with basically pure impunity. some of these gangs are remnants of the revolutionary forces that were established during the fighting that took place that has been robust to lay down their weapons for a variety of reasons. some are more extremists and they emerge from these evolution nary forces. this brings to light the sinister -- but outside of the authority of the government itself. the realization here very much that this is not the pa
in benghazi that was attacked a couple of months. and we knew there was a heightened level of security. >> gretchen: according to senior diplomat sources the u.s. state department had information 48 hoirs before the mobs charged that american missions may be targeted but no warnings were begin for the diplomats to go on high alert and lock down. aside from that congressman, now the safe house in benghazi is known obviously and there is reports that sensitive documents may be missing and libyans who were working with the americans to help them are outed. >> that poses's new set of problems and a breach much our embassy and consolate is serious. there is information that should be classified and state secrets because of the work we do as a diplomatic mission overseas. any information that gets out is sensitive and a loss. there are procedures in embassies and consulate when the wall is breachedcertain things are supposed to be done. there is a thorough review. did we lose information or is it clear yet today that we have lost something that jeopardized the life of libyans. >> the libyan
of benghazi and the types of attacks for which those groups have claimed credit in the past, intelligence officials tell the "washington post" the fbi's tentative conclusion, their working hypothesis about what happened in libya is that that assault that killed our ambassador there, quote, was carried out by a group aligned with al qaeda. and that is in contrast to the angry mobs of irate civilians who are menacing u.s. embassies around the world today. they have been riled up by reports of this crude anti-muslim video that turned up on youtube purporting to be a trailer for a longer anti-muslim film. the origins of the film are murky, no one is actually even claiming credit for the film. youtube restricted access to it in countries where anti-muslim speech is restricted and the u.s. continues to try to convince the world just because some wing nut in america made this offensive thing, that does not mean that the u.s. government has anything to do with it. nor does it mean that the government approves of it. nor does it mean that the government should be blamed for its existence. >> we've
